Problem

The reaction

H2SeO3 (aq) + 6I (aq) + 4H+ (aq) → Se (s) + 2I 3- (aq) + 3H2O (l)

was studied at 0°C, and the following data were obtained:

These relationships hold only if there is a very small amount of I  3- present. What is the rate law and the value of the rate constant? (Assume that rate = - Δ[H2SeO3] / Δt)
